Carrot & Raisin Cupcakes

My weekly delivery of muffins to the cafe continues, and this week, i decided to branch out a bit from the ordinary to whip up some Carrot and Raisin muffins. I've made a cake from this recipe before, with a cream cheese frosting and it was delicious! The only modifications i made to the recipe for 'muffin' versions were to use double acting baking powder (for the large domed top) and omitted the cream cheese frosting because i wasn't sure how popular these would be, and didn't want to leave the cream cheese languishing atop the muffins all day,unrefrigerated.

Rain and Muffin Cravings
I returned to the cafe on a late Sunday afternoon to see that only 1 muffin had been purchased! The cafe owners consoled me with the fact that nothing 'sweet' had been sold all day - we blamed it on the weather! (heavy pouring rain throughout the day i suppose sparks off the need for greasy savoury fry ups , warm toast and sausages) - a longing for sunny side ups to will the sun into it's blazing glory.


  • next time there are spare cupcakes, you gotta let me know!!
